By Sarah Batcheller. Updated by Mary DeMaio

We all want a relationship and love like we see in old films like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Casablanca — you get the picture. Why not plan a date night that reminds you of these movies? Catch a film at a drive-in movie theater with your beau. Drive-in movies are the perfect balance of the big screen and the great outdoors. The two of you will have your seats all to yourselves, so you can snuggle as you please. Best of all, you’ll have a classic, romantic date night that you’ll never forget.

Date Idea: Head to the Drive-In Movie Theater

Drive-in theaters are easy because you never even have to stand up. So, if you and your boo are torn between hanging out on the couch or getting all dressed up to go out, you can have the best of both worlds. Netflix just doesn’t compare to a night like this. USA Today has described some of the best drive-in theaters in the nation, and you can always search for local ones online as well. It pays to do your research before embarking on this date idea, as you’ll find which theaters are older and have a more iconic feel and which are newer with more updated features, like high-resolution screens. You’ll also want to look at the movie listings ahead of time so that you can choose a film you know you will both enjoy.

To go all out, rent or borrow a convertible so that the openness creates a relaxing atmosphere. Or if you’re insect-adverse, go ahead and keep the roof up. Either way, fill the car with pillows and blankets and recline your seats. Another good thing about drive-in theaters is that you don’t have to sneak in snacks in your purse. Bring something homemade to munch on. You can even bring a bottle of wine and two disposable wine glasses. That way, the coziness is at 100 percent. When the film is over, you can end the date night with a midnight drive around town or stop at a local diner to really achieve that 1950’s feel.
